What do you get when you mix my love gold metallic and IKEA? A gorgeous Gold Metallic Bookcase...
I love the deals and trendy home decor found at IKEA. The Vittsjo Bookcase is a steal at $70. The elegant look of the Vittsjo metal and glass bookcase is gorgeous, but I preferred something lighter than the dark metal. A huge number of home decor issues can be solved with one essential ingredient...paint.
The metal Vittsjo bookcase with glass shelves is such a great piece from IKEA. It comes standard in a black metal, but with some spray paint it can easily be transformed to your ideal piece.

The soft, satin look of the gold gives the Vittsjo a classic elegant look. The lighter color is better suited to the light colors used in the room.

    This is stunning! I just bought this bookcase a few weeks ago and never thought of painting the metal. I see another project in my future...

    • @Heather Stenberg Thanks! My mistake. The single bookcase is $40 I paid $70 for the shelves too. Sorry...I'll correct that.
